Subject: Comeback Kid - Bobby Weir
We'd seen Bobby & Co. in Denver during mid-winter and it was a less than stellar performance. Six months late, and having driven a thousand miles across the 100 degree inferno of the Great Plains to check out 10k Lakes Festival, we already had dug a fair number of bands, and going into the primetime SAT night gig with Bob Weir/Ratdog, we had low expectations.

Please allow me to digress for a moment. I think the previous viewer is making a common cultural error - confusing quality for taste. Clearly, this show was not to his liking. OK, fair enough. But this was a QUALITY show, and this second set was damn creative on the play-calling: Dylan into Miles into Terrapin and Beatles was effin' brill. We were sitting next to an older very-straight military kind-of-guy from the Twin Cities, had to be in his late 60's, and he was grinning so big I thought he might ascend to heaven then and then.

On a side note, Kimock with Bobby is a huge upgrade, and l love the jazzy spacious sensibility. Bob Weir is my vote for '07 rocknroll's Comeback Kid.

Finally -- nice recording. Thanks to David Lawrence.

Subject: What!
Ok don't get me wrong, I love the Grateful Dead and all of its members. I am glad that Bobby and Phil are still keeping the spirit alive for us too young to have experienced the Grateful Dead spectacle. That being said this show is slow and lame. Yes these are all great songs, but Bob performed all of them with very slow pace and no energy. There is so much dead space in these songs, where nothing is going on. I want to ask all of the other reviewers: Which song got you dancing and kept you grooving from beginning to end? Certainly not anything in the first set. Listen to the opening of Help on the Way and you can just hear how bare it sounds. And yea i know Tennessee Jed is a slow song but even that was just lacking a drive. Bob just seems like he is playing through the old standards with no regard for the audience and the show as a whole. Again, he is Bob Weir so he can play these songs until the end of time for all I care. But when 10,000+ people are there to hear their beloved Dead songs and they are just lazy performances, that is when Bob Weir should stop playing. Besides I can think of many other groups to fill this spot that would have given far more than Ratdog did (Dark Star Orchestra, Zen Tricksters, Phil). The reason people thought this show was enjoyable was for two reasons:
1. Everyone loves to hear Dead songs. They're great songs. So people were just happy to hear a live performance nice and loud of these great songs.
2. They were tripping and didn't care how well the band played.
I was at this show and I just kept saying "OK, let's get this show rolling". It never did.

Such a great way to close down the weekend, especially in the 2nd row. Couldn't have asked for anything better. sound quality is decent as well.-

Subject: Steve on Lady with a Fan
I agree with a previous reviewer that if Bob would have let Steve play about two more times through the solo section it could have been one of the most brilliant pieces of music ever played. But oh well, it is still some great music.

This show and the Red Rocks show are the best Ratdog shows I've ever heard!

Subject: Awesome 2nd set
This is the jazziest two sets of Grateful Dead music I've ever heard. Ratdog stole the show at 10k. The Milestones>Terrapin is probably the best thing Bob Weir has ever done for me.

Nothing left to do but :):):)
Reviewer: jerryskid89 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - August 9, 2007
Subject: Kimock!!!!!!!!
I was at the show and consider it one of the better Ratdog shows I have seen(top 5 with the fun festival setting as a consideration). The Milestones> Terrapin was worth the trip. At the beginning of Terrapin Kimock is taking his time building the Terrapin theme, and just before he lands completely in the grove Bobby starts the lyrics. Listen to the show you'll hear it!! SK may not get there as quickly as Jerry did, but he sure is gettin' there! If Bobby waits just a second and you have something that was perfect, all's we're left with is something that was Grate!!!
